TRAVELLING BY GOLF CART ON ANNA MARIA ISLAND, Florida 

A great way to travel the scenic seven mile stretch of Anna Maria Island is by Golf Cart. What better way to explore and truly experience the paradise of your vacation Island as you enjoy the beautiful Florida sunshine while traveling from place to place?  When you stay with Anna Maria Island Condo Rentals - 601 Gulf Dr. N. Anna Maria Island, Florida 34217 you will see many of these popular, safe, eco-friendly electric carts on the streets. Yes, Golf carts are street legal on any street where the speed limit is 35 mph or less which includes all roads on Anna Maria, Holmes Beach, and Bradenton Beach north of Coquina Beach. The golf carts can run up to 25 miles before losing any charge! Imagine not having to stop at a gas station to fill up your gas tank and being able to park in a small space where it would be difficult to fit your full sized vehicle. You will want to take your cart to go shopping, to the public beach or out to dinner.  You can even enjoy eating your ice cream as you sit in your open air golf cart!
